After serving as town manager for the past 5-1/2 years, Greg Dunham has resigned as Kenly Town Manager.
Dunham informed town staff last week he was stepping down to accept a job as town manager in Gulf Stream, Florida, population 850.
Gulf Stream is in Palm Beach County, Florida where Dunham served in city management for 20 years including the neighboring towns of Ocean Ridge and Manalapan.
Dunham called his departure “bittersweet.”
“I love this town but this (Gulf Stream) is where my support group is, which includes my two daughters. Right now I am 700 miles away from them. It puts me closer to them,” Dunham told WTSB News on Monday.
Dunham is a native of Dallas, Texas. He holds a masters degree from Florida State University.
His last day with the Town of Kenly will be April 14th. He begins work in Gulf Stream on April 17th.
The Kenly Town Council will meet on April 10th to name an interim manager.
Dunham’s departure comes just over two weeks after Kenly Mayor David Grady resigned suddenly.
